Real Estate IKEA: The new construction method that will change the industryWalla system!
When was the last time you were at a carpenter? A real carpenter, the one you come up with with the drawing of the closet you wanted and he cuts and grinds, prepares you a handmade product after a few months' effort. They prefer to go to IKEA, obviously, and buy cabinets in the assembly. The fastest and simplest.
Now, think of the office tower that will be built right within walking distance of you, or the building next to you that is undergoing noisy TAM. You are probably thinking about processes that will take two, three or even four years.
Four years ago a number of entrepreneurs lifted the glove and decided to try to shorten the process. They set up Katerra, a company with over 1,400 employees and expected $ 1 billion orders that threaten the conventional construction market. The company modifies all end-to-end construction processes with the help of technology.
how? Think of IKEA, but with a giant and lots of technology.

The company treats all planning and execution phases as part of a major manufacturing process. Instead of the construction site you see on the street, it takes the tower's design and divides it into exact parts, from the construction, the foundations and the walls, to the panels, windows, lintels, everything in a production line that is away from where the tower will be built.
When all is ready, she leads all the parts to the site and assembles the parts of the building. Exactly and quickly.
With a 30 percent savings in time, a global conveyance system, accumulated over $ 1 billion orders, and dozens of active buildings and towers, the method probably works.
The new method can save the entire lengthy and cumbersome construction process of today when, after each building, dozens or even hundreds of consultants and experts stand, from the design and architecture stage, through the foundation and foundation materials to the quality and construction supervision. In addition, this construction reduces the risk of human life on its construction sites and is much more environmentally friendly.
